The Student Hub connects Imperial’s key support services in one easily accessible place, providing advice and guidance to almost 17,000 students and 8,000 staff on all aspects of student life. 

Located centrally at Imperial main campus in South Kensington, the Hub is a space where students can chat with our expert advisors, pick up literature and access a wealth of information, including accommodation advice. 

The Hub team have years of experience in helping our students find accommodation in the private sector, including running housing events at key times. During the last academic year, the Hub team managed over 38,000 student enquiries in person, on the phone and online.

As a private accommodation provider, you have the opportunity to advertise with us all year round. We offer two targeted advertising options for you to choose from.

Private Housing Evening - Exhibition and talk

They will learn when, where and what to look for as well as which providers could help them. 

Exhibiting at this event will provide you with a fantastic opportunity to meet a captive audience at a key time and explain how you could help them in their search.

What you get

Included in your package will be: 

  • your exhibitor stand fee
  • company logo and profile in the exhibition guide 
  • quarter-page advert in the exhibition guide 

May Housing Roadshows

The Student Hub team will be taking to the road to meet our students in their halls of residence throughout May. 

These 2-hour roadshows will be an opportunity for hall residents to hear a brief talk by the Hub team members as well as ask them for advice or questions about their private housing search so far. 

We are offering private accommodation providers the opportunity to come with us to a hall of your choice to showcase your services to our students.
